9 Tasting Notes

drank Summer Lemon by Rishi Tea
9 tasting notes

This was the best lemon iced tea I’ve ever had. I normally don’t care for lemon flavored black teas, but this was just the right touch of lemon. The flavor was not fake or too strong. It was light and refreshing. The tea itself was not bitter. Very nice.

I was expecting something more peachy. When brewed I didn’t taste any peach. I found the tartness of the hibiscus to the pronounced flavor with an aftertaste of the citrus flavors. Sweetening helped cut through the tart.

drank Pure Iced Tea by Rishi Tea
9 tasting notes

This is a great simple black iced tea. Waaaaay better than Lipton. At first I steeped it for 3 minutes and that was on the weak side, steeping for 5 minutes made it stronger (as the directions stated, I just like to check after 3 minutes in case it’s a strong tea). I thought the tea had a smooth taste and not bitter at all.

This tea is amazing! The citrus taste is a little on the strong side but not overpowering. I was afraid to use boiling water because of the green tea but the herbs and rooibos need the boiling and I can safely say that I did not taste any bitterness from the green tea. The green tea and green rooibos provide a nice taste base for the tea and complement the lemongrass and lemon myrtle very well. It’s very refreshing on a hot day. Highly recommend.

drank Green Ginger by Tazo
9 tasting notes

I thought the tea tasted OK. There was a very strong ginger taste, almost overwhelming. If I didn’t like ginger I think it would have been too strong. A friend had given me a few packets because my stomach had been upset. I can’t say that the tea helped, but it didn’t hurt.

Smooth black tea with light peach-y taste. It’s about a 75 warm but as an iced tea, 80+. I am looking forward to spending some summer days sipping on this.

Very nice strawberry flavor. Light astringency, hardly noticeable. Tastes delicious warm or as iced tea. I think it’s sweet and good on it’s own; if you like sweetened tea, I’d start light with the sweetener.

drank Masala Chai by Rishi Tea
9 tasting notes

Made this half strength (split a sample packet with a friend). I loved it at this strength, my friend felt it would have been to her liking full strength. The spices are in perfect harmony. The smell of cardamom when I opened the package blew me away (in a good way, I love cardamom). This is the best Chai I’ve had. I’m definitely willing to try their concentrate.

drank Peach Blossom by Rishi Tea
9 tasting notes

The best white peach tea I’ve had to date. The peach flavor was strong (how I like it) and I thought the other citrus notes complemented it well. Tasted good through two brewings, wasn’t able to try a third. Also, chilled the tea and makes a fantastic iced tea.
